The smell of virgin pages wafted through the swinging doors
And the croaking speech he'd heard from countless counselors before.
They said, "We all care for you, we know how you suffer,
But I know you can succeed, I used to have it so much rougher."

There's hope in the words and emotion in the eyes.
It's so easy to be misled by the savvy gentle guise
And like fools we trust the delivery,
But it's all just drunk sincerity.

In maternal family assembly poised regarding the blue tube,
The numbers crept up higher and the hawks stayed out of view.
Then the generals said, "We dont want our boys dead.
Your sons and your husbands will be coming back heroes soon."

There's hope in the words and emotion in the eyes.
It's so easy to be misled by the savvy gentle guise
And like fools we trust the delivery,
But it's all just drunk sincerity.

With steam, heat, and rhythm in the back seat of the car
And adolescent perspective projecting life's forecast to the stars,
You heard love from the lips and you were rapt by the hips
And the promise was eternal, but you couldn't see that far.

There's hope in the words and emotion in the eyes.
It's so easy to be misled by the savvy gentle guise
And like fools we trust the delivery,
But it's all just drunk sincerity.

I keep humming this one, so I got off my duff and tabbed it. As usual, send any comments or corrections to rbp@capitalnet.com. Oh yeah, and I didn't get the solo. :)
